Check this link out and you'll be more confused than ever.you probably answered this before in this thread.... but what day of he week was the Passover lamb slaughtered?
Sometimes wonder what the underlying motive is for bringing up these discussions; quibbling over non-issues. We've seen so many of these benign discussions turn into a 'if you're not doing this or believing that you're not saved'.I think PsyOps is saying what you just said, and what I believe: It is not an issue concerning salvation and eternity. God left a number of mysteries open in the Bible, and I think He gets a kick out of seeing us thinking and talking about those mysteries, which, in reality, we are talking about Him. Talking about Him is always good.
So that Pharisees would continue to test the faith of followers?seekerof truth,
re: "It's called faith.... if the Bible says it's true.... then it is.... it's called faith...."
Where does the Bible say that it was common to forecast that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could occur?
The question that causes my question is this..... Did you bring up this topic to cause an argument, making yourself look smarter than others like the Pharisees did when they questioned Jesus?seekeroftruth,
re: "So that Pharisees would continue to test the faith of followers?"
What's the question that causes your question?
I think it's part of the question. I understand that what day we go to church may matter to some.... but most Christians have Jesus in our lives every single day now.... and we don't care what day or what hour He ascended. I figure I can ask Him when I get there.... would you like for me to ask Him for you too?re: "If someone will feed you, heal you, and give you hope.... why would you question them about the hour of the day..."
That's an issue for a different topic.
The whole topic was the which day do we consider the first day.... Did Jesus "die" on Wednesday or Thursday? Was it Saturday or Sunday when they found that empty tomb? Did Jesus stay for 72 hours or was it 70? That's what you're discussing.... right? I say it doesn't matter.... the fact is.... God has figured out how to pull off eternal life..... IMHO.....That's the big deal.... not what day do we go to church to be shot at.....re: "...so doesn't it make sense that when they said midnight they would be talking about the about the middle of the period between dusk and dawn.... wouldn't noon be more like midday when the sun was "about" the middle of the sky?"
Yes. What is your point with regard to the topic?
Maybe the problem is.... we don't understand the question..... What was common?6. I am simply asking anyone who thinks it was common, to provide examples to support that belief; i.e., instances where a daytime or a night time was forecast or said to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime and/or no part of the night time could have occurred.
